This is one in a series of a male Cerulean Warbler I photographed yesterday.  I previously submitted a Cerulean in one of my series of warbler images, however it is very fortunate to get one at eye level in his breeding plumage and on it's breeding grounds.  Cerulean's are a canopy bird and are more often heard than seen. Since this nice specimen was taken at eye level I'm submitting it as one warbler and not as a series.

A great image of a species that not too many have observed or photographed, Warren. Nice pose and background, as well.
